Use library elements

Once you have added a library to a version, you can reference any element or object in that library from your version documents.

Adding a library to a version means that any key used in that library is now resolvable by the version.

For example, suppose that you want to use elements from the IXIA_Legal library in a document. You have added the IXIA_Legal library version (for example, IXIA_Legal_2015_01_01) to the version for your map (for example, DITA_CMS_4.0.4).

To reference an object from the library, you can:
  1. Use the Dynamic Release Management panel in the Search view to display all the objects that are in the IXIA_Legal_2015_01_01 library version.
  2. Add the objects displayed in the Search Results to the map or topic, as appropriate.
Note: When you change the status of library objects, it has no impact on the workflow of the map or topic using that library object. For example, if you have a map in the Authoring:done status that uses a library object, if this object moves to the Authoring:draft status, the map that uses this object will remain in the Authoring:done status.
